    Chicago should stage a GP in Jackson Park (or whatever name they are going to put on it). In town, on the lakefront, great views, won't mess things up too much as Grant Park (or whatever name they are going to put on it) would. Just the musings of a kid from Rogers Park (or whatever name they are going to put on it).

    Yes, Lake Shore Drive would be epic. I believe there was once talk about an IRL race but of course nothing ever happened. Chicago had the offer to put George Lucas' Star Wars museum near McCormick Place and these idiots voted it down for environmental reasons. Imagine a proposal for a race? No way Jose.

    Damn, that would be awesome. Although I would put the GP earlier than May because of the hot Miami weather. But hey, I won't look a gifted horse into the mouth.

    Continuing the thread drift....NASCAR is having an irace in the Grant Park area.....street course. This follows just a few weeks ago the rumor that NASCAR is thinking about a street race. The Captain likes the idea, so.....is the irace a prelim to a real race? I don't know.

    Late May is reserved for Monaco, always so it would be early or mid May and that is the very best time of year in South Florida when the days are longer, the snowbirds have left AND it is just before the weather shifts from perfect to too hot and humid till October...

    The very best outdoor days I had there were always in May, beach, kayak, golf etc...

    This is so fabulous great news. I can't wait. I'll be so there, no question.

    They will likely tie it together with the Canadian GP for logistics reasons, so it's either before or after Montreal.

    Stadium parking lot. Not exactly what F1 wanted as a showcase event.

    Possibly this will be workable but overall fits the mold of Liberty looking cheap and easy growth quickly = street circuits. That 'event' locale vice a good race possibly.

    There is no way I am going to a first year "temporary" track event. Nothing but trouble until they work the bugs out.

    Or not: Good chance they will only do the race once and then the protestors will block it from future occurences.

    It's in a parking lot? Glorified autocross.

    This reminds me of the Hoboken NJ race that had been planned. They had spent some money on making the paddocks. I drove part of the layout when my daughter lived near there. Any idea on what was spent on that failed attempt ?
